Downtown Minneapolis’ Central Library is the location for Teen Job Fair - an annual event bringing together 600 youth from seven Minneapolis high schools and youth-serving programs from around the city, to learn about opportunities with 40 or more local employers such as T.J.Maxx, Lunds & Byerly’s, Cookie Cart, AVEDA, and others. Job applications, internships, workshops and a “dress for success” Teen Fashion Show highlight the day. Hennepin County Librarians staff computer stations to help young people identify resources to continue their job search in the future.
The annual Minneapolis Partners With Youth conference for Minneapolis Youth Work Professionals brings together more than 300 youth serving professionals from approximately 90 organizations in the metro area. The conference offers attendees a great learning experience and the opportunity to share knowledge through keynote addresses, concurrent workshops, and networking.
